When reclining in a pedicure chair or prepping fingers for elegant thumb-wrestling bouts, guests are lavished in Shellac and OPI polishes. ART beauty products complete looks, as makeup artists use pro techniques to cover, contour, and enhance features. Facials are completed with the help of Dermalogica serums and microcurrent and microdermabrasion technology.

Q&A with Coreen Mathe, Owner/Aesthetician
Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
I supplement my main services with LED light therapy and 24K nano-gold collagen gel masks.
What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
I customize my treatments according to my clients' needs. I like to do combination treatments. The reason my clients love them so much is that they see results immediately. All my treatments are very result-oriented.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
Having my own proprietary blends, I'm consistently striving to create better products by using the best and, in some cases, very exclusive ingredients, such as the Swiss apple stem-cell extract. I'm also very proud of the edelweiss stem cell with advanced technologies, such as nanotechnology.
Whether patients are seeking birth control, or a facial, AStar Medical Group has the team to accommodate them all. Helmed by Dr. Rene Perez, the center offers a full range of obstetrical and
gynecological services. But the center is unique in that it also offers
aesthetic services that include laser treatments for unsightly veins and hair, wrinkle-reducing dermal fillers, and other helpful procedures. There are also maintenance-based skincare options, including Vivant Skin Care acne facials and Image Skincare peels, which exfoliate using apple stem cells, bearberries, and other ingredients that might be as tasty as they are effective.
The team at Bal Harbor Bouari Clinic helps clients reshape their silhouettes, whether that's through contouring treatments or weight-loss plans. The contouring treatments, also known as nonsurgical lifts, use radio frequency to encourage collagen production in the face and body, firming and toning skin. Weight-loss plans integrate many techniques, including nutrient-rich diet plans, an aloe-based detoxifying supplement, and regimens with low-impact exercises such as walking, yoga, and swimming. The staff can work with primary-care physicians, creating healthy weight-loss goals for clients who contend with type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.
Aida M. Lopez Dental Spa presents clients with more opportunities to experience a beautiful smile than the typical dental practice. Though the staff completes routine checkups, they focus on comprehensive cosmetic care, relying on ultramodern technology?such as laser-hair removal, skin tightening, and more?to restore and enhance more than just smiles. Radiant and relaxed grins spread across the faces of guests who enjoy spa services ranging from facials and massages to Botox and other dermal fillers. All of the treatments serve the clinic's greater mission to impart clients with more confidence than a fairy-tale prince after he successfully scales the castle tower but before he realizes it's just the pigeon coop.
White curtain sheers and clean white walls lead clients from the entryway to treatment rooms inside Aventura Aesthetics, where beauty services leave clients looking and feeling renewed. Microdermabrasion treatments incorporate a diamond-tipped wand to whisk away the topmost layer of dull skin and leave a natural glow in its place. For a more dramatic change, Bio-Lift facials tighten complexions with sound waves to cancel out drooping brows, lines, and pirate radio stations broadcasting from the forehead. When it comes to massage therapy, Swedish massages relax muscles with gentle kneading, whereas deep-tissue massage gets to the center of chronic pain and releases it with targeted finger pressure.
